Well, I think the post title itself gives a good portion of the post’s substance away; but to hell with that, let’s plow on!
This is another one of those posts pulled from the depths of the icebox of my Iphone’s notes, which in turned was pulled deep, deep out of my ass about 6 months ago. It’s a post I’ve actually been wanting to do for a while now and after feeling guilty for not posting in ages, I’ve decided to break the seal on this one and enjoy writing it (I do take pleasure in churning out a good, long post).
As long as I can recall (which, frankly, is not a great deal. I honestly can’t remember what I ate for breakfast when it’s lunch), I’ve always had a preference for the written work over the other forms of media. To absorb a painstakingly constructed plot and to ease the consumption like a book can is a sensation that no other forms of media have yet to let me experience. Something about holding a physical copy of fiction and to slowly work your way through it at your own pace just clicks with me.
Thus, I’ve decided to write a post today to explain why I watch such a scarce handful of anime over the huge amount of manga I read. I’ve been asked that question a fair amour after all
First of all, I should probably apologize for my lack of posts lately. I could say that there really hasn’t been much to write about in the way of editorials, but that’s just excuses. I could tell you that I’ve been through a few rather hectic weeks with my laptop being sent in for maintenance and me moving to a new place (I will move again in about two weeks anyway), but no one really cares about my personal life. Hah! Well I’m not telling you much more about it anyway!
I seem to do quite a few meta posts that focus on specific aspects of the human psyche and behavior in the animanga context, so from here on, I will be prefixing such posts with the term “Analysing”. Yay for my supreme creativity.
Now, on to the main topic.
When writing about a popular show that you love, it is important to not forget your brain in the dumpster. Otherwise, you will end up writing things that won’t only make you look like a retard on LSD, but also earn the ire of the more critical part of the anime blogging/reviewing community.
On the day I write this post, I’ve watched both the endings of Legend of Korra and Fate Zero in the course of 2 hours. Knowing myself when it comes to finales, this was a f*****g stupid idea but I went ahead with it anyway.
So today’s post, whenever the hell this finally goes up, would be about my impressions to both of the finales of these wonderful shows I enjoyed. There’s going to be a lot of imcomprehensible text in the next 5 or 6 paragraphs so beware!
And if you’re too stupid to realize, there will be spoilers to both Fate Zero Season 2 and Avatar: Legend of Korra.
If you are watching Saki: Achiga-hen, have seen the original Saki series, Akagi, Mudadzumo Naki Kaikaku, or that other mahjong anime that I forgot the name of, then you would probably know how to play Riichi (Japanese) Mahjong or have an interest in learning how.
Obvious spoilers follow.
